Sanjay Gupta has been appointed associate dean for MBA and professional master’s programs at Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business.
Gupta, the Russell E. Palmer Endowed Professor of Accounting, had served as the chair of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems since 2007. During that time, he led the department in numerous successful efforts involving fundraising, AACSB reaccreditation, expanded curricular and diversity initiatives, and revitalization of the IT specialization — a joint program between the Broad College, College of Engineering and College of Communication Arts and Sciences.
His research focuses on corporate and individual tax policies, such as state and local taxation, financial reporting of taxation, corporate tax burdens, corporate responses to changes in tax incentives, and the interaction of taxes and financial reporting. Gupta has published extensively in leading tax and accounting journals, including the National Tax Journal, The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting & Economics, Journal of Law and Economics, Journal of the American Taxation Association and Tax Notes. In addition, he has served on several boards and committees, including the MSU-CIBER Advisory Board, AACSB’s Accounting Accreditation Committee, and the University of Notre Dame Accounting Advisory Board.
Gupta received his doctorate in accounting from Michigan State University, a master of accountancy from Bowling Green State University, a bachelor of laws from Calcutta University in India and a bachelor of commerce from the University of Mumbai.
Kathy Petroni, Deloitte/Michael Licata Professor of Accounting, will serve as the temporary acting chair of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems while an internal search is conducted. She previously served as acting chair of the department in 2001–2002 and 2006–2007.
